Cambridge is one of the most famous cities in England thanks to its historic university and colleges that date back to 1208. There are lots of wonderful things to do in Cambridge from punting along the River Cam to exploring the famous “Backs” of the colleges and visiting the many museums.
I first visited Cambridge on a school trip many years ago and instantly fell in love with the place. From the incredible architecture on display across the city to the huge array of interesting museums, parks, gardens, and excellent pubs and restaurants, it’s a place I go back to again and again.
Some of Cambridge’s top places to visit include the historic King’s College, the Polar Research Institute, and the Botanic Gardens. The city is also a great place for foodies due to the many excellent cafes, bistros, bars, and restaurants to try out. It’s somewhere I usually go for special occasions and it’s great for couples.
